Первое интервью:

In Portugal, we have a unique word to express the fact that you miss someone or some kind of event in your life. That word is “saudade”. Was that what moved you to get “Reckless Road” published? Is it “Saudade” of the old times or friendships?

I was proud of what I did and just wanted to share it with the world so they could get a chance to see what I was lucky enough to see. I know how important it is to get a book like Reckless Road out to the people that want to know about it. I grew up a big Aerosmith fan and I would have killed to get something like this for them. I worked on this book for many years and it was my biggest goal to get it out the the fans

Being a professional photographer was part of your future plans, when you began to shoot the band?

I started to shoot photos in April 1982 of concerts that I went to. In June 1982 Slash played a gig at Fairfax High School so that was the first time I shot him with a guitar. I used to take photos of Slash doing tricks with BMX bikes in 1978. I also shot Hollywood Rose and LA. Guns with when Axl was in the band but the first time I shot Guns N Roses was June 6, 1985 at the Troubadour. That was the first gig with the Appetite For Destruction line up. It was a very special gig.

Is there any sad story concerning someone near the band or a sad moment for everybody, back in the day, that you wouldn’t mind sharing with us?

When their friend Todd Crew passed away. He was a member of the band Jet Boy and the band was very close to him.

We know that you’ve already tried to get Slash and Axl in the same room, after the breakup. The GN’R fans still dream of the possibility of a reunion so, in your perspective, is it still possible for Axl and Slash to reconcile?

It is but would take a lot of work. They would have to both go to a very could marriage counselor that they both trust. They would first have to go by them selfs to get their felling out about each other. That by it's self could take months. Axl has many more problems with Slash than Slash has with Axl. A lot of the problems could be solved by some apologies. I would love to see them a least talking to each other again someday even if they don't ever play together again.

What are your thoughts about the Chinese Democracy record and Slash’s new record conception? Are you able to tell us which record you like the most?

I love them both. They are doing the best they can with what they have to work with. People are always trying to compare what they are doing now with what they once did. They are both playing with different people so how could you compare it. When Steven was out of the band things were already little different. After Izzy left things were going to have to be a lot different. So that alone would have led to the music being a lot different. The music all those guys made together could not have been made with anyone of them missing. At that time They all wanted to make that same style of music. a few years latter they wanted some different things.

Have you been to any “new” GN’R show yet? In case you did, how was it for you?

I saw the new band in 2001/2002 a few times. I really loved Bucket Head. I saw the band in 2006 five times and I have not had a chance to see the 2010 shows live but I have seen the video footage. It's alway great to see Axl on stage, there's nothing like it. He always gives you his best show.

Besides Slash, have you been in contact with any other guy from the old line-up?

I have always been close with Slash since 1976 but when he was using drugs he would avoid me because he knew what I thought about it. When he quit drugs he became a better friend. Over the years I stayed close with Axl. I would only see Duff at a party and I lost touch with Steven from 1990 to 2006 but now were close. Izzy I only saw once since he left GNR.

We are still in shock about the latest news about Slash and Perla. They seemed happy at the shows here in Portugal, last June. Have you any idea of what might have been the reason of their divorce? Or are you surprised too, just like any of us?

Marriage can be very stressful and even more so when your in the public and famous. I don't know the reasons but people sometimes change.

Back in the day, when you began to have some material of the band, did you had any idea that Guns N’ Roses would achieve this major place in the rock n’ roll history?

I knew if they could stay together they would get signed and have a gold record. I had no idea that they would get to be as big as they got. Making the vidoes that showed on MTV was a big help.

Slash has his biography; Steven is going to publish his soon and, apparentely, Duff has already thought about that too. We don’t know about Izzy yet, but we’re sure Axl has lots of writting done about his life. In what terms is your book a good form of showing GN’R history?

Reckless Road is about the birth of Guns N' Roses. No band has ever had their birth documented. There were like 24 people interviewed for the book. My goal was to have all the band members look at the book and see what they might remember from the gigs. Jason, my co-author, wanted to interview the band to add more story to the project. I started thinking that everyone who was around and had something to do with the band should have something interesting to say. So, I made a list of people. Ex-girlfriends, roadies, strippers, record company people, the producers and mixers that worked on the record, friends and old band members from all the bands before GNR.
Jason interviewed them and threaded their stories throughout the book, where they would best fit. The things that I added were mixed in with all the gigs and Jason pulled them out and mixed them in with all the others' interviews.

Between the gigs there are quotes about different subjects. Also, because I recorded all the gigs, the transcriptions from the shows are all in the book. I think what's great about Reckless Road is that it's enhanced. That means, when you buy the book there is a code on the first page, you go to enhancedbooks.com and you use that code to see the whole book online. There, readers will be able to listen to audio clips from the gigs. You can hear clips during the time when they played the songs for the first time. There are also over 200 extra photos that didn't make it into the book, as well as video interviews from the band and people that helped make the book. So if you a fan of Guns N Roses and want to see how it all started Reckless Road is a great book for you.

In your opinion, which old line-up member is able to write the most loyal biography to the facts? Or is it better for people to read your book instead, because none of them (old members) might tell us the whole truth?

Axl will give you the truth, but there is sometimes two sids to a story so you have to hear both sides and try to make something out of it.

Do you think they are happier now or felt happier back then, when the band dissolved?

From what I could see Axl is not happy about everything that went down and feels Slash stole many years of his life. Axl is happy with the people that he is working with now. Slash would like to do some sort of reunion tour. It's always fun to preform in front of lots of people that want to see something like that. There lots of people that never got a chance to see that line up. I would love to see a tour with both line ups. 1 and a half hours of the old one a new 1 hour of the new one.

Do you know why Buckethead and also Robin Finck quit GN’R?

No I don't know.

Are you friends with any new GN’R member or crew? If so, what do you think about them, personal and professionally speaking?

I met some of them but I haven't hung out with them. They are good musicians and do a good job.

Any idea why GN’R shows start so late sometimes? Is it really Axl’s fault or is there something else that people refuse to see? And if you feel this is Axl’s responsability only, in your opinion, why does he insists on it?

Axl doesn't set a goal to go on late. If he could he would always be right on time. If he is not ready to go on than he is not ready. Axl will give you everything but only when he is ready. If he is not ready there is nothing to give. Thats the way it has always been. It's Victory or Death nothing in between.

After the GN’R tour and their time to breath and rest a bit, what plans do you think they have for the future of the band?

I hope they will get a new record out.

What are you doing now and what dreams do you still need to fulfill, professionally speaking?

I help run at my family's Restaurant Canter's Deli. My goal is to promote my book Reckless Road. I spend a few hours everyday doing that. It's a big reward when people thank me for my work. It feels good making people happy. My dream is to have my work around 300 years after I'm gone. Looking down and seeing people enjoying something that I put together.

Do you have any studio where people can visit your work? If not, have you thought about having one?

I have some of my work up on my facebook http://www.facebook....6&id=1601256921

or my Guns N Roses group Facebook http://www.facebook....85867&ref=share

Also my myspace http://www.myspace.com/recklessroad
I would love to have a gallery for people to come look at in person. Maybe some day?

Have you ever been to Portugal? Any opinion about this country and its GN’R fans?

I and never been there but I know that is where some of the biggest GN'R fans are. If anyone has trouble finding my book Reckless Road, I can sell and ship them a signed copy see my facebook or my space for more info.

Marc

Второе интервью:

-First of all, congratulations Marc for your “Reckless Road: GNR and the making of Appetite for Destruction”, an amazing book for the fans of the band with the real story of the beginning of the journey to success for Axl, Slash and company. How do you remember those years?

-I remember felling like I was watching Led Zeppelin get their start. Every song they came up with was album ready. They had a special sound, special image, a special guitar sound…

-Your friendship with Slash made you to pick up a lot of material like photographs and recordings. When did you decide to make a book with all that stuff?

-It was in the summer of 1.993, it took 14 months and cost me $18.000 to put together the first draft. I couldn’t find a publisher. I sold off my whole rock n´ roll magazine collection, which was about 2.000 of them, to try and self publish the book, but I ended up buying old baseball cards instead. In November of 2.006 I found a publisher by accident. “Reckless Road” was their first book so there were a lot of problems getting it out. It was my dream to get this out to the people that want to see the birth of GNR. I knew that I documented something special and wanted to share it with the world. It was a big load off my shoulders to finally get it out after all those years of it sitting around.

-You own Canter´s Deli, famous Jewish style delicatessen in the Fairfax Disctrict of Los Angeles. And it was usual to find the members of GNR there. It seems that your help was very important for the band…

-Canter´s has always been known for the musicians and famous people to hang out at. Back in the 1.950’s, there were lots of big movie stars, in the 60’s all the hippies like The Doors, Frank Zappa, The Yardbirds, Jimi Hendrix ,The Stones, and almost anyone else that was around in Hollywood at the time. Slash used to hang out at Canter’s with his parents when he was a kid. As far as my help, I did what I could. I had a good job and lived at home with no expenses, so most of my money went to helping my friends band. I knew they would make it if they could stay together long enough.

-We know that you´re a hard fan of Aerosmith too. Are Aerosmith and Guns N´ Roses the soundtracks of your life?

-You have to add in Zeppelin, UFO, Sabbath, and Deep Purple. The only band that I like out of that time zone is System Of A Down, and a band that my son was in, called Frontrunner. Their songs were 70’s style.

-Reading your book we can feel the rock atmosphere of L.A. in the 80´s. How is the rock scene today? A lot of changes?

-Yes, in a few ways. It’s a lot harder to get signed because most of the record companies are gone and because of all the downloads nothing sells anymore. But because of Youtube and Myspace, you can still get your music out there. As far as the clubs, it has turned into 100% pay to play and they only give you 30 minutes to play after you sell $500 dollars worth of tickets. In the old days there would be 3 bands every night, now they have 7 bands each night.

-Back to Guns. You had the opportunity to live the early days of the band, and some people say those were the best years for GNR… What do you think?

-It was a special time for them. They were young and eager to write songs and play in front of people. They were writing songs for them selfs with no presser and didn’t have to worry what the world would think. When they got out “Appetite For Destruction”, they all had reach their goal´s for that time. After that, it would turn out to be a lot harder to reach more recording goals. I know it was a big goal for Axl to get “November Rain” out and they did reach big goals with the “Use Your Illusion” tour. Because of difference’s they were not able to reach new goals with that line up.

-And what about the relationship between Axl, Slash, Duff, Izzy and Steven? Were they real mates?

-Yes they were, they all had each others back during that time.

-I think this question is not new for you: Why do you think the original members of GNR did break up?

-The same reason as people get a divorce. They find themselfs wanting some different things. As big as they got, they couldn’t hold it together. People grow and change and you can’t expect them to do things that they don’t want to do.

-Any chance for a reunion of them, especially for Axl and Slash?

-There is a chance as long as they´re alive. As far as Axl and Slash, they would have to both go to a good marriage counselor that they both trust. They would first have to go by themselfs to get their feelings out about each other. That by it’s self could take a very long time… Axl has many more problems with Slash than Slash has with Axl. A lot of the problems could be solved by some apologies. I would love to see them at least talking to each other again someday, even if they don’t ever play together again. As far as touring together, it would be cool to see both of the GNR bands play. 1 1/2 hours of the old band and 1 hour of the new band. There are lots of people that were too young to see the old band and it would be a great way for a lot of people to hear the new record and band.

-Axl and the new members of GNR are near to visit Spain with four shows. What do you think about the new band? Do you like “Chinese Democracy”?

-Yes, I like it a lot. It’s always great to hear anything Axl does. That record took a long time to get out, but not a long time to make. By 2.002 the record was ready, but there were a lot of things that needed to be worked out with management and the record company. So while waiting for that to happen, they added some things to it.

-We know (we have read it on your book) that Axl played with piano some songs on your wedding day. Marc, you´re a lucky man…

-We asked Axl to play “November Rain” because I thought it sounded like a great wedding song. This was back in 1.989, two and a half years before “Use Your Illusion”. I heard the song back in 1.985/1986 and always loved it.

-The last question: What does it mean GNR in your life?

-I’m very proud to have been a part of it. Every day I spend a few hours promoting my book “Reckless Road” and now I also have some very special 11×14 and 16×20 prints from some of the special gigs. Some of which they debuted a new song. I opened an Ebay store with fixed price items. My goal was to get these out to the fans at the lowest price I could.

-Thank you Marc for this interview, it has been an honour for us…

-Thanks.

Первое интервью, видимо переводилось на английский с португальского, количество грамматических и смысловых ошибок весьма велико, не стал бы ручаться за перевод.
Ничего особенного в интервью нету, всё это мы уже 100 раз слышали, и про реюнион, и про старые-добрые гнр и т.д.)

Прочитала около половины интервью. Многое из того о чем Марк говорит уже нам известно, но все таки интересно было почитать о тех событиях, впечатления об их участниках со стороны, и кстати, журналист из LRI, который беседует с Марком признает, что книга Reckless Road по его мнению даже лучше чем литературные труды Слэша и Стивена. Вообщем я теперь тоже очень хочу эту книгу приобрести. В интервью Марк говорит что был своего рода одержим группой как коллекционеры бейсбольных карточек в какой то мере одержимые своим хобби. И Марк тоже был коллекционером сначала собирал инфу об Аэросмит –доставал постеры, флаеры, делал вырезки из газет и журналов, записывал шоу, а потом коллекционировал тоже самое касающееся карьеры Слэша. Так что Марку удалось задокументировать очень многое и для поклонников GNR его книга из разряда must-have.

Сам Марк Кантер владеет легендарным заведением Canter’s Deli, которое основали еще его предки и которое почтили присутствием многие знаменитости. И конечно Ганзы там тоже отметились. Вот это фото было сделано именно там
Здесь они запечатлены вернувшимися из своего первого тура The Hell и Canters Deli – было первым местом, где они остановились. По словам Марка они были очень голодными не ели нормальной еды около 2-х недель и им очень нужна была фотосессия для флаеров и концертов которые они собирали в Л.А. Сразу после этого 20 июля они дебютировали с «Welcome to the jungle» в Трубадуре.

Кое что еще было для меня новым, например то, что увлечение наркотиками в группу принесли Иззи и его тогдашняя девушка Desi. Не знала я так же что когда Даффу было 15 его девушка умерла у него на руках от передозировки героина, поэтому Дафф никогда не притрагивался к этому веществу. По поводу увольнения Стивена Марк ссылается на интервью Алана Нивена, который утверждал что Стивен был уволен на самом деле не по причине наркомании, а из-за того что его игра была не тем что требовалось для новой эры GNR. Так же интересно было узнать мнение об Иззи и причинах его ухода. В интервью Марк говорит, что Иззи немного параноик и «с приветом», чудной вообщем. Он продолжает делать свою музыку, выкладывать ее на iTunes, может изредка появиться на каких-то концертах группы и сыграть вместе, но вообщем на него нельзя положиться, так как он может пообещать, а сам не прийти. Он мог уйти из группы по куче разных причин, но ко всему прочему он очень опасался возможного потока исков из за бунта в Сент-Луисе и боялся, что потеряет все что имеет. Еще одна странная причина ухода, о которой я не знала заключалась в том, что Иззи не хотелось тратить миллион долларов на видео «Don’t cry». Он даже говорил с Марком на эту тему и спросил, нет ли у него копий видео-выступлений ГнР чтобы из них можно было смонтировать видео. Иззи в основном волновала музыка сама по себе. Иззи хотел быть в Velvet Revolver вокалистом/ритм гитаристом и просто погрузив фургон, отправится бы в тур. Но остальные хотели большего, Иззи в отличии от них очень простой чел по словам Марка. Если бы проблемы между Акслом и Слэшем были бы разрешены, то Иззи бы был с ними, но он очень не любит сложности и конфронтации.

В интервью есть ссылка на видео «It’s so easy», которое официально тогда не выходило. http://jetamuz.com/video/12435 Оно было снято во время шоу в Cathouse 10 октября 1989. В то время Ганзы должны были открывать 4 запланированных концерта для Роллинг Стоунс и это был я так понимаю один из концертов перед этими событиями.
Ладно продолжу читать дальше.
